I just have those 3 e30s. the two 86 325 and the 87 325. one is actually another member on here and I am putting the engine in and storing because he is in flight school for the navy and is in florida so he will swing by and grab it after flight school.

edit:
nothing has changed for me. still got kids, though one is supposed to go in the army this summer. the other starts high school next year. they both want e30s and e30s are not easy to find inexpensively anymore. the house we were renting is ours not, we bought it. then last year started having issues with the foundation moving and now we can either knock the house down and rebuild, or have some company level it (with no warranty since we live on the ocean and its sandy). we are leaning towards knocking it down and building a stilt house.

I built my 87 wrangler and swapped he stroker with a 302. got bored and sold it. we built my oldest son a Cherokee and he had the fun of doing the engine swap because the original engine was not going to make it. we sold that also. we sold the mini cooper and want another now. almost bought an abarth fiat but passed. the wife has her little turbo ford escape and I have the gas hog 94 chevy truck. I start cycling about 4 or 5 years ago so I had to get something that could haul bikes across texas to rides and races. I ride a lightning phantom now and am saving up to buy a lightning p38 but you know how kids and life effect saving money so who knows when that will happen. I have to save up 3500 for a base model.

I actually just rode from Brownsville texas to south padre island yesterday. did 36 miles with 1500 other cyclists. the head wind killed a bunch of people's times but I was still doing about 15 so I finished in a hair over 2 hours.

still married to my beautiful wife, cristina. almost 20 years now. still work for the military in aviation. 24 to go and I can retire.

Just looking at my Join Date makes me think, 13years almost, thats pretty crazy.

Im still doing the same thing as last time, only now working in engine development and testing motorsport engines.

I had a blast in 2015-2016 calibrating this thing. Did 95% of the work on the ECU, Display and power control module. It was a big job but alot of fun.
https://www.astonmartin.com/en/vulcan

Now we are developing a new GT Aston Vantage car for ELMS, IMSA, WEC, BlancPain etc. and Im looking forward to doing tons of engine testing and race car calibration on it, Im scheduled to be on the test team for it.

Then we are also working on a FIA Renault rallycross car that I hope Ill be heavily involved in as well.

Also got engaged, no kids,

When are you coming back to the tri-state?
I went to NY with the GF in fall of 2015, it was awesome to visit Manhattan.
I dont know when but my holidays are booked up this year.

I might not be able to make it next year as Im planning a cross country road trip with the fianc, Flying to San Fran, buy some rando american 80-90s car then drive it to Miami and fly home, 20days,

4-5hours a day of driving and visiting as much as we can (8am leave, lunch in new town, sight seeing and shit in the new town, dinner repeat about 20 times). The reason for the rando US car is that I want to be able to repair it if needs, so will definitely need to be able to get spares anywhere on the way. But we havent decided where we are going so we might drive south LA way, then across texas stopping in Las Vegas and then drive north east and then down the coast to miami, depends really right now.

definitely need some sort of deal with a Hotel / Motel brand to make it as cheap as possible.
